How To Make Your Own Marijuana Fertilizers
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, July, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
Marijuana fertilizers come in all shapes and sizes, and most of them achieve the desired effect of producing better marijuana plants with better yields. Many fertilizers range from relatively common store-bought substances to somewhat outlandish, but easily accessible resources. Whatever you use, it’s important to understand the value of fertilizer for the marijuana plants.
Cannabis relies on fertilizer to get its valued nutrient content. Without any nutrients (food), the plants will end up withering away to nothing. Just having water and light won’t be enough to get your plants thriving. Fertilizers can go a long way in doing just that. But, what are the best fertilizers to use?
There is some logic behind sticking with a proven formula. For years, garden centers across the world have sold Miracle-Gro and other packaged fertilizers at relatively inexpensive prices. Using these fertilizers is a tried and true method that has worked for a variety of different gardeners for a variety of different plants. These fertilizers also give you the added benefit of listing the amount of nutrients they have in the soil.
For instance, most store bought fertilizers work off of a standard ratio between nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K). This is called an NPK ratio and it lets you know exactly how much you’re feeding to your plants.

One of the strangest fertilizers you may have ever heard of is human urine. Indeed, the yellow stuff is chalk full of the nitrogen that can promote stem and leaf production. It is important to not urinate directly on the marijuana plants or even near the plants because it might kill where it touches. This is because the urine has too high of a concentration of nitrogen for it to be safe. That is why it must always be diluted in about a gallon of water and then used quickly. If it’s not used soon after the solution is made, then you run the risk of ammonia forming which could infect and kill the plant.
Of course, another relatively inexpensive and also tried and true method is composting. Composting is nature’s way of really highlighting the circle of life. Any organic material you might have lying around in your backyard is sufficient for composting. This can take the form of stashed away dog feces or it can be the product of decayed oranges from an orange tree. You could even combine different organic materials that have been lying around for months or years at a time. Although it might strike you as a gross way to make a fertilizer, it is one of the best and most natural ways to produce a thriving crop.
There are more options for fertilizers that you might want to try, but these are certainly three of the best (or at least the easiest to use). Whether you’re peeing in a bottle or going down to the garden center to buy a bag of pre-made fertilizer, you’re going to increase your marijuana yield with higher nutrient content. In the end, that’s all you’re really looking for when it comes to fertilizers.

Do Cops Have To Return Medical Marijuana Plants That They Take?
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
I have many friends who have had run ins with law enforcement which resulted in law enforcement taking their medical marijuana plants. When the cases went to trial, most of these friends were acquitted of all charges. In the process, the plants that were torn out by their roots had long since died. There are cases of this happening in almost every medical marijuana state in America.
The victims who had their medical marijuana plants wrongfully confiscated have the right to sue to get their property back, and if it’s damaged or destroyed, to sue for damages. Per the Green Field Reporter:
Whether or not state laws require, as they do in Colorado, police to return medical marijuana intact if a suspect isn’t charged or is acquitted, departments have been sued over pot that has wilted in their evidence lockers.
In Colorado Springs, a cancer patient who had faced drug charges is suing police after 55 dead plants were returned to him. The state appeals court had to order the police to return them.
Medical dispensary owner Alvida Hillery sued police to return her 604 pot plants or pay $3.3 million after she was acquitted of drug-cultivation charges. She dropped the suit in exchange for a city dispensary license.
Police departments who take first and ask questions later should be held accountable. Taking finished product is one thing – it can be given back after trial. However, taking living, breathing plants should be a last resort, and if the cops can’t keep them alive, they shouldn’t be taken at all. It’s very difficult to put a price tag on a medical marijuana plant, so restoring the confiscation victim to where they were prior to destroying the plants is very difficult.
Dear Washington, Expect Shortages On July 7th
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
Colorado has their legal weed model set up and already rolling. Washington kind of fell behind, putting off letting the plant take over legally. They said that they would release the cannabis this summer and thankfully, that day is almost here. However, Washington is beginning to expect problems with the release of the legal weed due to an extremely high demand and a very small supply.
Washington passed their legal weed law around the same time that Colorado did, granting residents only the option to purchase weed legally in the minuscule 15-20 shops that have been granted their licenses to sell marijuana recreationally. With such a small number of shops in the state, the demand is going to severely outweigh the supply, creating a problem with revenue for those who were planning on making a lot of money from opening day, much like Colorado. This small amount of shops really lucked out, being drawn out of a lottery of 334 shops requesting to open in the state of Washington on July 7th of this year.
The shop Cannabis City, which is located at Fourth Ave South and South Lander Street, is seriously worried about their supply. The shop will only have ten pounds of marijuana available when the doors open and with prices ranging from $15-$20, they're expecting to run out of products by the end of the day. Other stores are worrying the same thing, including the shops in Bellevue and Des Moines. So if you are in Washington state and are planning on purchasing legal weed on July 7th, it's definitely recommended that you arrive early in order to get your hands on some bud before it disappears.
Ten Facts About Cannabis
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
People tend to know a lot less about cannabis than they would like to think. There are hundreds of thousands of misinformed people that have no idea what they're talking about when it comes to weed... And that includes some stoners! It's important to know the facts when you advocate for something so here is a list of ten facts about cannabis that you may or may not know.
1. Marijuana can be good for mental health, helping those with anxiety, depression, and other issues to relax and calm down, letting a little more positivity in to their lives.
2. Increased rates of treatment admissions in addiction clinics isn't because marijuana is addicting... It's because the justice system forces those who get caught to attend substance classes and rehab, instead of just letting them light a plant on fire and inhaling the smoke.
3. The majority of people who smoke weed don't use other drugs, including alcohol. While some people still try to toss out the gateway theory, most people by now are aware that a lot of stoners are actually extremely health and environmentally conscious.
4. Every year, there around around 750,000 people that get arrested for marijuana related "crimes", most of which are because the person was in possession of the plant. Most of these arrests are minorities and are thought to be racial discrimination.
5. Cancer cells are inhibited by CBD, one of the substances found in cannabis. CBD works on preventing cancer cells from reproducing, causing the current cancerous cells to eventually die. Marijuana is also thought to protect the body against the formation of cancer.
6. Not only does cannabis combat cancer but it also helps with numerous other diseases include epilepsy, ADHD, multiple sclerosis, and arthritis. Since our bodies naturally come equipped with a system designed specifically to handle cannabinoids, one could argue that this plant is a cure-all for almost every affliction known to effect humans.
7. There are no negative effects of marijuana... Unless you're a pizza that is. The plant doesn't "make you stupid", cause you to run over children while driving, or make you crazy enough to speak to the devil. Marijuana has virtually no side effects and when compared to other substances that are still legal (alcohol and tobacco), is probably far safer.
8. When Colorado and Washington began to process their recreational cannabis laws, the use of the plant among young people actually decreased. Just goes to show that the spreading of knowledge is incredibly important and when distributed correctly, can be a huge help. Those under 18 should avoid smoking marijuana unless prescribed by a doctor, seeing as how the effects of THC on the developing brain can cause gaps in myelin, the coating which protects this important organ from damage.
9. Even stoners who have smoked for decades (much like the much loved duo Cheech and Chong) show almost no long term cognitive side effects. They don't drool or stumble around trying to function... In fact, Chong actually beat prostate cancer using a healthy diet, Rick Simpson Oil, and a world renowned healer.
10. While people assume that driving while stoned is really dangerous and you'll probably kill yourself or someone, there is no compelling argument that cannabis causes traffic accidents or fatalities. In fact, most stoners would tell you that driving stoned actually makes them drive better then if they weren't.
Washington Samich Truck Starts Sales
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
While Colorado is wrestling with it's edible laws after a few unfortunate reports of people ending up getting way too high (some stories ended a lot worse unfortunately), Washington seems like it's ready to get stoned. The state legalized marijuana back in 2012 but has since put the new legal laws in to effect, saying that this summer is when the recreational stores will begin to sell. But since the state is medical, marijuana is still available and the company MagicalButter is on their game, ready with a marijuana food truck to dispense awesome medicated treats to card holding Washington residents.
"Samich" as the truck is called is currently on tour of the cities in the US that allow legal cannabis use. The truck started in Denver, back in April and has been a hit where ever it went. Run by the same company that makes the MagicalButter extractor to make tinctures, oils, and butter, the Samich truck is ready to keep Washington residents medicated with their "Savory Accessible Marijuana Infused Culinary Happiness", which as you notice is where they got their name!
The truck has a seriously delicious menu as well, ranging from truffle popcorn to their signature sandwich that includes what they call "trinity jam", a mixture of blueberries, raspberries, and pomegranates. They also throw on some nut butter and banana for a little extra kick! Each product will get you stoned though... Every item on the menu contains between 30 and 100mgs of THC, which is considered to be a healthy daily serving of cannabis.
As of right now, only people who have medical cannabis cards will be able to get products from the truck. Hopefully once Washington establishes their legal laws, others will be able to partake in the delicious treats that the truck will be selling. The truck will continue to travel around and serve the stoners of America as more and more states begin to allow legal weed.
The Marijuana Spa Movement
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
Let's face it... Girls love going to the spa. Hell, with the stress that people experience these days, even guys should be going to the spa to chill out for a bit! A massage, perhaps a trickling fountain of some sort, and a totally calm environment? Sounds like the perfect Saturday afternoon! What could possibly make such an awesome time better? Simply, cannabis infused oils, salves, and creams of course! If you're a resident of Denver, Colorado, you can experience this amazing spa treatment at a select few spas around town.
The spa industry rakes in $14 billion a year. That's a staggering number. Add in cannabis for those patients who are really in pain and you should probably tack on another $6 billion to that number. The potential for a THC infused spa industry is absolutely incredible. Since the plant still remains illegal in many states, the spas haven't really taken off yet but they're expected to, especially in the recently legalized states of Colorado and Washington. Using THC and CBD in the massage process could absolutely help those suffering from arthritis, muscle pains, or physical injuries from sports and such.
Effects of the CBD oils and lotions are simple. The patient feels an even deeper feeling of relaxation and peacefulness, while at the same time the patient remains levelheaded and not so high. Both parties feel a benefit from this, as the massager has an easier time working longer since the CBD effects their hands also. Anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis help to soothe the aches and pains of the body, showing that these cannabis based massage products could be absolutely amazing for any age patient.
Cannabis is sure to make a huge impact on the spa industry. While the creams and lotions are still illegal in a lot of the states, it's definitely something that will gain more momentum as more find out about it. Women love beauty products and especially these days, with the worry about what's actually in our makeup bag, natural based cosmetics are steadily becoming more and more common. The spa is just the first stop on cannabis' take over of the beauty industry. Hopefully, women (and men) will be able to get cannabis leaf face peels and full leaf body wraps!
